Program Accomplishments

Fiscal Year 2016: The number of reports provided by the public, ESP?s and companies such as Facebook, Twitter and Google regarding child exploitation increased during FY2016 as more people and companies became aware of this format to provide information regarding these crimes. Reports generated also increased and continue to facilitate the abilities and actions of law enforcement and prosecutors and the capability to continue to be more effective in securing the internet, the homeland, the people and their way of life. Fiscal Year 2017: It is expected that the number of reports provided by the public, ESP?s and companies such as Facebook, Twitter and Google regarding child exploitation will continue to increase during FY2017 as more people and companies become aware of this format to provide information regarding these crimes. We can?t predict the percent of increase in the reports generated, but expect it will continue to be a significant increase. In turn the reports continue to facilitate the abilities and actions of law enforcement and prosecutors and the capability to continue to be more effective in securing the internet, the homeland, the people and their way of life. Fiscal Year 2018: It is expected that the number of reports provided by the public, ESP?s and companies such as Facebook, Twitter and Google regarding child exploitation will continue to increase during FY2018 as more people and companies become aware of this format to provide information regarding these crimes. We can?t predict the percent of increase in the reports generated, but expect it will continue to be a significant increase. In turn the reports continue to facilitate the abilities and actions of law enforcement and prosecutors and the capability to continue to be more effective in securing the internet, the homeland, the people and their way of life.
